While I am sharing this most important wardrobe essential with you, I thought I’d also share how I go about blazing a trail my way.
Which really means, let’s have a look at some ways to wear the wardrobe essential blazer!
I have used my retro 60s style blazer with the funky brown and lime green print as the focus of this look. Layering a long-sleeved brown t-shirt under a lime green sweater vest and then topping it off with the blazer. The bottom half is my thrift store maxi length brown skirt and my brown sued boots. The handbag is neutral, by Coach and the necklace is from my Lust Have – Statement necklace haul. It’s a good look for both work and casual and is one of those outfits that I wear all the time because it works for so many occasions.
For this look I have used the black Ralph Lauren pants from the wardrobe essentials with a pink t-shirt, the pink wedges from my Lust-Have Haul (they were bonuses), the black handbag also from the 10 wardrobe essentials, and my Marni inspired $5 vintage find blazer! The look is completed with a beaded necklace, purple suede belt and some bracelets.
This suit is the charcoal grey with pin-stripe suit I had made in Hong Kong. Rather than wear it with a white button-down, I like to take a little of the corporate out of the look by wearing it with a denim shirt. I’d never get away with wearing blue jeans to work so this is my way to slip it in. Adding in the turquoise jewelry keeps the look more relaxed and wearing the heeled ankle boot rather than stilettos works well for the currently colder days here in the Southern Hemisphere.
Just in case you need a little more inspiration on how to style your blazers and to make sure you are getting maximum potential out of this wardrobe essential, I thought I would include these inspiring looks from fashionistas around the world.
